This is one of the stamp sets which is being promoted as part of Stampin’ Up!’s Red Cross bush-fire appeal. 50% of the $55.95 sale price of this set will be donated directly to the fund. So far Stampin’ Up! has raised over $15000 toward the appeal from the sale of these stamp sets alone which is fantastic. Thank you to those of you who have so generously supported this fund-raising effort to date. Your response has been generous and wonderful
The card above uses the set Live Your Dream, from the current Mini Catalogue and a technique called emboss-resist. I CASED the design of this card from another demonstrator who has since removed her video tutorial from youtube 🙁 sorry I can’t put a link in here for you). I’ve used Whisper White ink (although you could use Versa Mark) for the large flower image and clear embossing powder over the top before embossing with my heat gun. The result is that the image becomes shiny and resists the ink I’ve applied over the top with a sponge dauber.
Here’s a list of what I’ve used to create this card (all from Stampin’ Up!):
Stamps : Live your Dream set
Ink : Whisper White craft ink pad, Sage Shadow, Perfect Plum Classic ink pads.
Paper : Soft Sky, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Accessories : Clear Embossing powder, Heat Gun, Powder Pals, Sponge Daubers, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Elegant Eggplant grosgrain ribbon.
Please remember to order your stamps from the list below before the 31st of March to contribute to the appeal- thankyou.
